pictures from karin and jeremy’s arbor day barn wedding in nebraska

You are going to love Karin and Jeremy’s DIY wedding, and these beautiful snaps from Bryan and Mae capture every handmade-with-love detail perfectly. Karin’s dress was made by her mom and aunt, and she asked her friends to bring their own bundt cakes to serve as table centerpieces and to eat! She was pretty much my favorite kind of bride to work with, and of course she is a friend of mine too. She was flexible, creative, open to ideas, and above all, focused on the real meaning of the day–not the decorations, the things, the food, the dress–but the marriage to her love and the union of their families.

I picked out some of my favorite photos from their wedding to tell a story about my friend Karin, the love of her life Jeremy, and their magical outdoor wedding surrounded with the support of their families.

See more BEAUTIFUL pictures on Bryan and Mae’s blog. Their wedding was also recently featured on Style Me Pretty. Check out more pictures of Karin and Jeremy’s flowers on my previous post about our work for them.
Congratulations Karin and Jeremy! I’ll see you at the next party!

OOTD: Windy, Rainy, Snowy, Sunny.

I'm doing a panel talk tonight (my fourth of the week), then Friday morning I'm leaving at 6am for Ikea in Kansas City, then driving on to Bentonville Arkansas for an event at the Crystal Bridges Museum, then back up north to Chicago for a Bears game on Sunday, then back west through Iowa to Omaha to arrive Monday night and get to work again. Then it's gearing up for Thanksgiving week, which will be the most important week of my online (and beyond...) retail career.

Leaving a Mark: A new mural project in Benson

Omaha artist Watie White is currently creating a series of murals in partnership with Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska where he interviews and creates a linocut portrait of several new immigrants to Omaha. With support of other organizations including the Intercultural Senior Center, Omaha Public Schools, the South Sudan Community Association, and the Anti-Defamation League, he's creating these small-scale carved portraits and then turning the art into giant murals all over town. This is one of two murals Watie is doing currently in the neighborhood of Benson in Omaha--you can see it on the side of the Benson Law Center. The themes in the text are inspiring--the desire for education, the bravery of leaving home in hopes of a better life, and a compulsion to give back to the communities that have welcomed them.

OOTD: Wooly and warm on Election Day. Go vote!

Go vote today! Every midterm election matters. Our local officials are the ones who are both most accessible to us, and who have the most impact on our daily lives. Partisan interest groups thrive on indifference, and sitting out of the vote serves only to continue the status quo of gridlock and fear-based campaigning. Locals, show the big money coming into Nebraska's races that we're smarter than that.

OOTD: Pleats and Posies

This dress gets filed into my personal "business drag" collection, the section of my closet devoted to things I would costume myself in to fit in to another person's board room, a nerve-wracking meeting, or a pitch.

What’ I’ve Learned: Marketing on Blogs and Social Media in 2014

Barbara Soderlin, a reporter for the Omaha-World Herald, recently contacted me for some comment about local companies advertising with bloggers in Omaha and we ended up having a really rich discussion about the changing landscape of online advertising in an age of social media. She had seen me post on Facebook about the decline of blogs as the epicenter of reader engagement in favor of other platforms that ask a little less of its users.
